I so wish windows was still that small! I don't really understand why it's got so massively bloated! How much is a typical install nowadays? Gotta be around 15 to 20gb? Compare that to win98!!!
The vast majority of the crap that comes with Windows I never use! No apps, no cortana, no edge, no media players or editors, virtually nothing except the core operating system that is required to run my own preferred choice of third party apps!
Seriously, why do they bundle all that rubbish with it?
Take a look at all the hype over new processors, claiming super duper speeds, yet my first pc with a pentium 4 started just as quickly as my core i7 12th gen does! Why? Because the os was more than ten times smaller! Pc's should be blazing fast compared to older units, yet they aren't, coe they're held back by the biggest bottleneck there is, the os!
